This course explores the relationship between religion, science, and philosophy, starting with the ancient Greeks and then progressing through the major philosophers – including natural philosophers or “scientists”- of the medieval and modern eras. This philosophical exploration of science includes investigation into questions about the nature of, and relationship between, metaphysics, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and the applied sciences. In the modern era, we turn to key questions concerning the problem of induction, the status of scientific frameworks, theories of probability, feminist critiques and, as a case study, competing views of origins.
